Concept Art from the Teen Batman Series that Never Was, Gotham High

Check out a whole gallery of images from this teenaged Batman animated series that never got off the ground, Gotham High. Harvey Dent versus Poison Ivy for class president, emo Joker... This would have been epic.

Artists Jeffrey Thomas and Celeste Green recently they released a batch of never-before-seen Gotham High concept art, based on an old illustration they both created. Sadly, the project was lost in development purgatory, but these amazing images remain. The idea reminds us of Clone High (which is a very good thing). Check out the rest of the art, it's just downright delightful. And here's the official synopsis from their site:

We all go through incredible changes as teenagers: growth spurts, bad skin, a sudden insatiable need to uphold justice and avenge your murdered parents…. Well, that is if you're Bruce Wayne.

As if being a freshman at Gotham High wasn't tough enough, Bruce's insomnia and technological fascinations are taking their toll. Instead of spending his time studying, he has begun to obsess over an emerging personality trait: Batman. But under the watchful eye of his guardian and steward, Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce is forced to put his intelligence to good use: graduating high school. But given his classmates, can Bruce survive Gotham High?

What a phenomenally evil idea-

I wish they had gone through with it!

Grownup Batfans (which should be a contradiction in terms) would hate it, but kids would love it. We need more stuff to attract kids to comics.

I personally love the epic hips on Barbara Gordon.

Bruce and Joker need to be drawn younger.
